    For you guys that have DB-81s - what is the weight of your barrels? Specifically the 32" O/U, but would like the weight of all of 'em.

    Thanks!

    DB-81 34 (33.5)" single barrel = 1.63 kg.(3.59 lbs).
    32 (31.5)" O/U barrel set = 1.70 kg. (3.75 lbs).

    I've probably looked at the factory stamped weight on at lease 6 other DB81 barrels and seen great variation in them. Dan Thome, Vince McNamara, Tom Ward, and others, have probably seen twice that number. Maybe they could offer some additional info. Jon Ackerman.

    My 34" DB81 single barrel weighs 1.780 kg. My 32" O/U barrels weigh 1.830 kg.

    All are fixed chokes

    My DB-81 is a very early model with 2 forends. The 34" single barrel is 1.79kg, while the 32" O/U barrels are 1.80kg. Both barrels are factory originals.....Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I have two 34"/30" DB-81 combos. The one that I have shot for the past 15 years is 34" - 1.61kg, 30" - 1.69kg and the other is 34" - 1.63kg, 30" - 1.65kg. All of these barrels have been backbored to .740 so they weigh a little less.
